Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Streaming trouble

Hi all,

This is in regards to the issue about streaming stopping at the end of a track and not progressing to the next track:
http://www.archive.org/post/318686/on-a-serious-note-duh

I've followed the advice, but when I toggle to the new audio tag, all I get is a large, black "X" in place of the Play controls.

Nothing happens when I click on the "X". And when I try to directly click on a song, it doesn't play. I'm able to go back to the "old Flash Player", but, as before, the songs stop at the end of a track and don't progress to the next track.

I'm using the latest Firefox browser. I've put the archive site on the whitelist of any Firefox add-ons that may cause trouble, but it hasn't made a difference.

Please let me know if anyone out there has experienced something similar and knows of a solution.

Thanks.

I use WinAmp here. There is a plugin that takes those 2 second gaps out of the sets. Download here....

Is there some way we can get a curators attention ?
Not one simple email , but more a chat ?
I guess if that dream is impossible , 10 or so different emails from 10 different people ?
Any ideas ?

I wish I had a solution for you, but all I can do is chime in and say that I've been having exactly the problem you describe. Are you running a Mac?

Yes, sorry, forgot to mention that I'm on a Mac (latest OSX) at home, and at work I use Windows XP Pro. Same problem on both systems.

Thanks.

Using Google Chrome here and toggling the cookie seems to work for me.

I just got an update from Tracey - they are aware of situation and trying to remedy it.

"hi jim,

this seems to be sporadic and not always the case.
i can reproduce it about 30% of the time; 70% of the time seems to advance just fine.
we are investigating a new media player so if we go with that, we should likely
fix this issue (it's not an easy/obvious one to track down and fix, unfortunately)-8

after file is streamed and retrieved from my temporay Internet files folder. I edit the files through a roxio sound edit program. sometimes I combine several tracks into a 50 minute single track. if you have trouble retrieving, buy an old computer with a windows xp operating system.

I get it to work only on occasion, so I've started just clicking on the VBR M3U or MP3 via M3U in the Left-hand "Listen to audio" box ('streaming' sub-box) & forgetting the built-in player for my own streaming player (WMP or the like - Quicktime, VLC, Realplayer).
The pauses seem much shorter between songs too, by the way.
Try it: you'll like it, Insh'Allah
